I believe you do need (and want) a permit. There will be inspectors in the house for the future work--
--If they see new work and no record of a permit--you are in trouble.

Basement permits should not be difficult to pull-----Read the code book before applying--That will head off the problem of leaving necessary items off the application.

A Canadian will be along soon enough to give you local advice.--Mike---

P.S.---Add your location to your profile--you will get local code info that way.--Good luck--
